OCEAN is an ERC-20 payment token and functions as the Ocean Protocol’s native token, allowing users to buy and sell “datatokens”, participate in governance, or stake in the Ocean Market.
“Data is king” has been the anthem of the internet age, yet many of the processes by which data is harnessed and its value maximized have yet to be fully formulated. Enter Ocean Protocol, established in 2017 by a team with extensive experience in Artificial Intelligence (AI), as a decentralized data marketplace built on the Ethereum blockchain. Notably, Ocean offers a unique proposition for industries like AI that depend heavily on data.
Connecting data providers and data consumers, the project seeks to give anyone the opportunity to access and monetize data through the development of the Ocean Market, an open source marketplace where participants can buy and sell data with the Ocean token (OCEAN). Users that stake OCEAN can also earn additional rewards from transaction fees.
